Taking care of a severely injured or diseased joint is more than applying state-of-the-art surgical techniques. It is the skilled hands-on evaluation and appropriate diagnostic testing that determines the best overall plan of care, remembering of course, that we are not treating a joint, but a human being.
Today, Americans are enjoying longer, more active lives than in any time in history. Yet, as we age our bodies change and a lifetime of activity and occasional abuse takes its toll on everyone. Sometimes those changes result in specific problems related to joints and muscles. Painful, stiff joints can become lifestyle altering and prevent many individuals from participating in the daily activities they enjoy. At the Human Motion Institute, we apply our clinical expertise to establish an accurate diagnosis quickly and develop a plan of care that fits the needs of each patient suffering from joint pain or discomfort.
It is our practice to exhaust every appropriate treatment option before considering surgery. However, if and when a surgical procedure becomes the right choice, our orthopedic surgeons are trained to correct problems related to joint pain. Our unique continuum of care approach produces outstanding clinical and patient satisfaction results. This integrated approach enables our clinical team to properly evaluate a patient's condition and prepare each patient mentally and physically for their procedure; then we continuously monitor and manage their entire pre- and post-surgical performance and progress. This full-service approach, which integrates the patient's primary care physician and orthopedic surgeon with a host of clinical support staff, is designed to return our patients to maximum function as quickly and safely as possible. Our orthopedic surgeons have the ability to replace all major joints.
